I got this frame/fork/crankset/stem from a friend for free. It sat in my garage for a while. After reading Scott's articles about his Schwinn Le Tour II, I decide to build it into a SS for casual rides/commutes.
I had to invest about $120 in a seat post, brakes, brake levers, cables, and bar tape, but everything else was stuff I had in the garage.
I think it turned out pretty good and that's one less bike frame in the local landfill.
